Saturday was the first official day of summer, so it was fitting that my friend hosted a pool party over the weekend. The party was Spongebob themed, which is great. There was an ice cream sandwich-shaped floaty and a doughnut inner tube, which is freakin’ awesome. (Heck yeah I instagrammed me chilling in that doughnut!)
Something about the bright blue of your typical, rectangular swimming pool gets me excited about summer. It reminds me of red heart-shaped sunglasses, Hollywood, bold-colored floats and good ‘ole Americana. Am I alone here?
But then there are the natural-looking pools made to appear like a backyard pond, and I personally love the options with a built-in “beach” that offers just enough water to stay cool while laying out to tan. Let’s not forget the awesome features, such as outdoor kitchens, swim-up bars and hotel-worthy pagodas. Oh, the options!
Inspired by my weekend activities and dreaming of the many cool shades and elegant shapes of swimming pools, I threw together a little swim-spiration. Happy Summer!
